In after years of athletics excellence, the International Association of Athletics Federations embarked on its second century with drive and determination. Athletics, a sport that was founded in antiquity, has continued to adapt through the centuries, offering a dynamic, life-enhancing sport which is ready for the exciting challenges of the next years. On the 17 July in Stockholm, Sweden, following the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in the Swedish capital, the International Amateur Athletic Federation IAAF was founded as the world governing body for the sport of track and field athletics. During the 10 decades that followed, athletics underwent many changes which reflected the political and socio-economic evolution of the wider world. The IAAF was founded to fulfil the need for a world governing authority, for a competition programme, for standardised technical equipment and for a list of official world records.

UCI Track Cycling World Championships
Before the UCI was founded, another world championships were held. The races would take place at South Side Ball Park in conjunction with the national championships. There was controversy before the championships even started when the Italian cyclists were prevented from competing as they had supposedly broken the amateur rules of the organisation. It was claimed that the Italian riders had sold cycling trophies and medals they had won for cash. In doing so, he became the first ever World Champion.
